Some of the responses we have recently received from our students...

Hi Dave, Alan, Terry and Chris

I didn't get chance as was late Friday the 16th September at approx. 3.45pm when I finished my test and got back to the yard and you had all finished for the weekend.

I just wanted to say that after initially failing my Mid 1 - because I didn't listen properly rather than something I couldn't do i.e. Did not park my front wheel in between the cones and put the whole Bike in it - I then smashed Mod 1 with 1 minor and Mod 2 with 1 minor also.

Just wanted to say - as I didn't get chance as you all had left and Chris locked up on that Friday when we got back - CHEERS for all your help and guidance and I knew on the day as I was taking the Mod 2 ( without being Big- headed ) that I would pass, as it went so well as I was doing it, and could hear Dave and Alan's voice in my head stating: Not to close to cars, more life savers, two second rule etc and that carried me through as I was; On it and focused.

So cheers for all the advice, help and training It did the job and if you were surprised then so was BLOODY I !

Off on a Cruise next week to celebrate and just bought myself a Kawasaki ER6N - 2104 plate, 1303 Miles on clock ( Nearly new ) in Black & Green and get it next week or week after.

Thanks to all and keep up the good work

Kind Regards





To All The Guys At West Pennine

I'd not rode a bike for 15 years. I took my CBT Saturday. The following Thursday took my theory and hazard perception. Under advice from you booked a 4 day course. Did 2 days riding the following Saturday and Sunday took my Mod 1 Tuesday and finally passed my test Thursday. 12 days from start to finish. If it wasn't for the skill and dedication of everyone at West Pennine that would never have happened. Thank you All for your patience and professionalism. What a great Team thank you again.

I just wanted to thank you for all the support I received from the instructors during my training with you. Terry was great and I'd like to say a special thanks to Chris who instilled so much confidence in me and taught me the skills I need to ride successfully and pass my modules 1 & 2 to gain aFull bike licence.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it to anyone thinking of taking it up with you. It was serious training but we had a good laugh along the way too..

Whilst I'm thinking about it, do you have any information on the Advanced Riding Day that you do? I did talk to your instructor Steve back at the training Centre about it briefly yesterday, who told me that he does the training.

I am interested in taking it up, but maybe when the weather is much better ?

Just want to say a huge thanks to all the Lads at West Pennine for helping me get through my DAS first time, Still not got to grips with it yet First to Alan who run the CBT, scared the crap out of me with blind spots hardly missed one after that. Then chris for the help withmy littlefist full of throttle and aproch speedproblem lol. Finally all the rest of you a f##kingmassive thankswill recommend West Pennine to all who wantto have fun learn and ride.Oh and I will be booking the advanced course soon as i get me Fireblade sorted.

Cheers boyz

Hi all

I am writing to express my sincere thanks to all of you, but extra

specially to Alan and Steve, who managed to turn me from a very under

confident rider (had not ridden for 16 years following an accident) to a

more than competent, confident and safe rider in just four days. They

had endless patience and offered sound advice (yes even Steve's "Stop

fannying about and get on with it" worked a treat!!). I thoroughly

enjoyed my days with you all and will not hesitate to recommend the

training school most highly to anyone that expresses an interest in

being a safe and knowledgeable rider. I passed my test first time with

only four minor faults so I was even more delighted.

Once again a heartfelt thanks to those wonderful instructors named, and

to everyone involved with West Pennine Training. Long may you continue

to provide such an excellent service to the motorcycling community.

With regards


Dave, Yvonne,

Just a quick email to say thank you.

I had never ridden a motorbike before and I was a little wary, I had no need to be, your instructors are fantastic.

The two instructors I had, Alan and Chris were great, their patience extra-ordinary.

I would like to say a special thank you to Chris who instructed me after my CBT to test, he is a credit to training school, even though I was making simple mistakes he never got angry, was always helpful and encouraging.

After passing my test last Friday and chatting with the examiner, we mentioned West-Pennine and that I had been very happy with the tuition, he said he also had to visit the training site occasionally and that he was also impressed with yourselves.

I would gladly recommend West-Pennine to anyone I know who is considering learning to ride.

Once again Thank You
